My little girls LOVE bubblegum. They would chew it first thing in the morning if I let them! These Mini Bubblegum Machine Valentines are such a hit at our house! They are SOOO easy to make too! I feel a little redundant when I say that my projects are easy to make, but I like easy projects! lol The great thing about bubblegum is that it lasts a really long time… so this gift can be enjoyed a little longer! It also refillable!
What you will need:
Multicolored Bubblegum balls(I got mine at Walmart in a tub)
2 1/2 inch Plastic Fill-able Ornament (the link will lead you to the one from Hobby Lobby- I found mine by all the glass jars in- store)
Red Paper Cups (I found mine from Hobby Lobby in the party section)
Metallic gray Scrapbook paper (Hobby Lobby)
Pastel pink (or any color you want) Scrapbook Paper for the ribbon message (Hobby Lobby)
The base of the bubblegum machine was made from a small red paper cup. I placed a band around the cup where I needed to cut it. Then I traced around the band onto the cup to make a line to cut on. Then I just cut it out.
The little ornaments that I bought from Hobby Lobby (not a Christmas item- they were found by the glass jars) have a ring on the top. I punched a hole with my scissors in the bottom of the cup and placed the ornament (already filled with bubblegum) inside. I taped it on the inside to secure. (If you will be passing these out I would go ahead and place some tape to the seams to to make sure they don’t fly open!) Then I cut out a little heart in a metallic gray and a ribbon shape out of pink and wrote “I Chews You!” on it! SO fun!
The cutest Valentine ever! It’s also gender-neutral!
Have a great Valentine’s Day!!!
